We are committed to saving healthy
and treatable animals in shelters in our
community and across the nation.
By leveraging our expertise and building
partnerships with under resourced shelters,
we are saving more lives together.
More animals are euthanized in California shelters than almost any other state in the U.S. Our average save rate in California is 82%, and more than 37,000 animals lose their lives in shelters every year. Many of those animals are still losing their lives in shelters due to overcrowding, lack of resources in shelters, complex medical issues, and disease. Through our Saving Lives initiative, our goal is to increase our impact by rescuing and saving more animals within our community and beyond.
Saving Lives through Animal-Centered Care
Every animal that enters our doors is provided with physical, mental, and emotional care. We provide a wide range of preventative and specialized medical care, including simple services such as updating vaccines and more complicated medical intervention such as orthopedic surgeries or advanced treatment for severe illnesses. We provide each animal with appropriate enrichment and behavior support to keep them as stress-free and happy as possible during their stay with us. Thousands of animals every year are cared for in foster homes, where they can receive individualized attention from our incredible foster families. Finally, our adoption program matches people and animals to create new bonded families.
We are continuing to expand our reach in California and partner with other organizations to help our state finally reach the goal of no longer euthanizing any healthy or treatable animals entering animal shelters. Here at home, we are helping our local partners tackle new challenges and we’ll continue to take in animals and provide assistance to ensure we maintain a safe community for shelter animals in Santa Clara County. Beyond our local community, we are focused on creating new partnerships and growing our programs to help more animals in need and increase the lifesaving capacity of our shelter partners.
